From the Journal Sentinel

A WDJT-TV (Channel 58) news truck became the news Sunday afternoon when it broke through ice on Big Muskego Lake while out for a story about ice safety.

The truck quickly sank to the bottom of the channel, which is about 4 to 5 feet deep. The driver, who was alone in the truck, mistakenly thought the ice over the channel was a road, Mesich said.
She was working on a segment about snowmobile safety on ice, according to the sergeant. She escaped without injury, but the truck will remain in the channel until it can be hauled to solid ground in the next couple of days.
It's unclear whether the driver will be cited, Mesich said.
